Purpose of IFS HPC certification

Rising expectations on the part of consumers and an increasingly complex supply chain: organizations working in the areas of household and personal care products are faced with ever-increasing demands. As products in this area have a direct impact on the health and safety of customers, transparency within companies and the market as a whole is required in the area of so-called non-food products. Certification according to IFS HPC is one way in which companies can meet these challenges.

The IFS HPC standard is used to assess the safety and quality of household and personal care products. It is one of series of IFS certifications in the area of food, products and services. Other standards are, for example:

IFS HPC ensures that certified companies produce a consistent product which fulfils customer requirements. The certificate is renewed at regular intervals. This means that certified companies are always in line with current legislation and also permanently develop and improve. Auditors assess the organizations according to unified standards throughout the world. The IFS HPC certificate is valid throughout the world. IFS HPD is based on quality management standard DIN EN ISO 9001.
